Georgetown, An Important Commercial Center a Century Ago, Is Regaining Former Prestige
View of New Railroad Freight Yards on Water Street, and showing Coastwise Schooner at Dock, Canal Traffic and New Power House in Distance.
Commerce Giving Way to
Industry Along Potomac
Water Front.
Dr. W. S. Washburn Pur
chases Residence Near Cir
cle From George Reese.
Is Georgetown to regain Its once
toustud eminence as a commercial city?
CM Georgetown residents viewing the
strides innilu In the commercial and In
'dusttlal lrnprovumtitt of Its water front,
(believe till! ana woo to the question Is
J . liuslncsj men who have watched
tltb pro?) ess of Improvements from the
Ifnot of Twenty-ninth street northwost-fs
on out to the Aqueduct brldgu, are
convinced that while the hopes of a re
birth of the old foreign trade cunnut
again be realtei'd, the walei front of
Uetirgetown la becoming even now the
place nhir will ua centered the Indus
tilal and shipping activity of thu Na
tional Capital.
The latter view Is doubtless the cor
rect one, and there Is ample evidence
to support It. The old warehouse at
the foot of Uhlrty-fourth street, which
nearly two centuries ago received the
cargoes of rum, molasses, and slaves
from Barbadoes and the other Islands
of the Caribbean sea may never wit
ness the revival of that overseas trade,
but It Is still a useful warehouse, ana
so situated as to receive the freight
brought In on the cars of the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad, whose tracks run
down the center of Water street to the
new yards at Twenty-ninth and Thir
tieth streets.
New Plants Being Built.
Commerce has given way rather to
Industry. The manufacturer has taken
the place of tho trader. A square to
the east of the ancient reminder of
Georgetown's early glory thero are now
being constructed between the railroad
tracR and tho Chesapeake and Ohio
canal two huge Industrial plants, the
new building for the Arlington flour
mills, and the latest addition to the
comparatively new naner factory. The
latter Is by far the largest factory In
the District outside of the Government
chops and the steel plant at Glesboro.
Tnis paper raciory, oy me way, is an
(Illustration of how a large Industry can
be built In Washington. It has received
no assistance from the Chamber of Com
merce or the Board of Trade, has not
excited the displeasure or tho ornciais
who preside over the administration of
the Dlstrlcl'H smoke law and has not
been found objectionable In any sense
to the residents of Georgetown. Its
building represents a steady growth
from a comparatively small one to Its
ipresent large proportions.
Sent To All America.
It is a striking contrast to the an
fcient structures of the early commercial
'iflays of West Washington, for adjoining
,and fronting it they still stand. Its
product, which .Is shipped to all parts
of the country. Is loaded on freight cars
'directly from It doors.
Turther down the street Is the Im
portant new warehouse and factory
if the M. C. Mitchell Company, an
111 'In stet'l, ami other metal concern.
Qui! tlu greatest monument to mnd
jern Georgetown, however. Is the new
Towe- plant of the Capital Traction
Company. This stands directly upon
Ith" river front, nnd Its supplies of
coal are broueht to Its doois by the
fwlpht c.irs of the Baltimore and Ohio
r.nlr-"iad and the fanal boats of the
'C lii'?ipeak- .and Ohio canal. Its huge
t'liimreas ra'i he ween for mllet around.
The stnctiit itMtlf :s a handsome one.

cilities which the water front of Georite

flc from boats to cars, for which there
are ample facilities at the river end of
the yards, Is expected largely to In
crease. Water transportation, of course, is
Georgetown's ancient and modern ad
vantage. If the ships no longer brine
salt from London, wines from France
or rum and molasses from the West
Indies, they do .bring Ice from Maine
and go out loaded with coal for Bos
ton. Any day one may see a trim
schooner lying at a Georgetown dock.
Plans liave been under way now for
several months to Inaugurate a New
York passenger nnd freight steamer
service with a freight terminal at
These are some of the facts upon
which the citizens of Georgetown base
their belief that a commercial and In
dustrial renaissance Is upon them.
